Amazonia: Five Years at the Epicenter of the Dot.Com Juggernaut
Highlights: “Online magazines such as Salon, Slate, and Suck, had already made an elementary discovery: a reader staring into the equivalent of a thirty-watt bulb didn’t want to confront thousands of words. The medium required a little extra white space, a sort of oasis for the optic nerve.”
Personal notes: This book was a ‘okay’ read. I personally love the work done at Amazon, so it got my attention since it related to amazon. The book doesn’t tell anything different than what you’ll discover in a few google searches today.
